After years of planning, an off-road vehicle park in Oakland County, the 106-acre Holly Oaks ORV Park opened Sept. 17, 2020. The park is a joint State-County project, operated by Oakland County Parks and Recreation in partnership with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources via a 20-year operating agreement (with a 10-year renewal). The park, consisting of former and active sand and gravel mines, is located off I-75 (at Grange Hall) and Dixie Highway across from Groveland Oaks County Park and Campground.
Holly Oaks is open to all types of ORVs, including full-size vehicles, side-by-sides, all-terrain vehicles or ATVs and motorcycles. Additional acres will come online as mining is completed on the remaining property with the full 235 acres expected to be operational by 2023.
